Just wondering, how do you suppose a multiple !Bang would work?
Open a bunch of iframes with each !bang's target or just spam you with a bunch of new tabs?
And of course you'd have to support ambiguous bangs, like typing Apple could mean you want to search on Apple.com or on some kind of apple recipe website.

Sounds like a useful idea, but one that would be a bit impractical to implement.

Possibly, or pop ups in new windows or tabs, either tabs built into the site or tabs on your browser.  I came up with the multi bang idea to solve the problem with searchers who like to search a few sites at a time.  

For instance, you enter the band name U2, and tabbed images would be shown of sites you can use the bang feature, and you can simply click on them and they would open up.

Yes, ambiguous bangs would be good, too!

It's a brilliant feature!
